Day 1: Read/memorize Psalm 23:1-4. Today focus on the phrase “Even though I walk through the valley”. Life has a lot of peaks and valleys (ups and downs). Are you in a valley right now? How are you walking through it? How do you wish you could be navigating it differently? Pray for strength.

Day 2: Read/memorize Psalm 23:1-4. Today focus on the phrase “valley of the shadow of death”. What age were you when you first understood death and that everyone would eventually meet that end? Does death scare you? Why or why not? Pray to God that you would have hope in resurrection to the new heavens and new earth.

Day 3: Read/memorize Psalm 23:1-4. Today focus on the phrase “I will fear no evil”. Jesus said in John 16:33 “In this world you will have troubles, but take heart: I have overcome the world.” What evils are you facing right now? Where do you need God to step in? Pray for guidance, and for an end to evil.

Day 4: Read/memorize Psalm 23:1-4. Today focus on the phrase “You are”. At times it seems like God has “left the building.” We pray – no answer. We weep – no comfort. Has God abandoned us? No! God is present. Take time to repent of the times where you doubt that God is near. 

Day 5: Read/memorize Psalm 23:1-4. Today focus on the phrase “with me”. St. Paul said in Romans 8:31 “If God is for us, who can be against us?” God is with you every step of the way. Pray for help in recognizing His presence. 

Day 6: Read/memorize Psalm 23:1-4. Today focus on the phrase “Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me”. The power of God should lead us to comfort, not fear. Because of Jesus, God looks at you with love and reconciliation. Take time to think about the times where God’s power has led to your comfort.
